The Queen of Latin, 58, previously told fans she was looking forward to moving home to the UK in order to spend more time with her mother. Today, Strictly Come Dancing star Shirley Ballas enjoyed a leisurely afternoon out and about with her mother, sharing her joy with her 121,000 Instagram followers. In a video, she said: “We’ve been shopping to get all our things. And my mum said that we are now sitting waiting for the taxi ’people watching’, is that what you call it mum?” she laughed.
Still giggling as her mother nodded in agreement, she added happily: “Having some fun time with my mum.”
Shirley wrote in the caption of the upload that she was “excited” for this weekend with her mother after relocating to the UK.
“Shopping with my beautiful mum,” she penned. “Excited about Mother’s Day.
“Love my mum’s sense of humour always seeing life on the bright side.
“Enjoy your day everyone and call a loved one and share your day,” she told fans.
Last week, Shirley told her followers she had an “emotional day” as she packed up the last of her belongings in LA.
